Six labourers breaking rocks during an excavation project on a hill in a rural area of Sargodha were trapped under rubble following a landslide on Monday, one of them succumbing to his injuries and the fate of the rest still unknown.

The body of one labourer, Falak Sher, was pulled out while rescue operation is underway to save the others, Express News reported.
